President signs legislation which starts a draft
Think this could happen in the near future?
A lottery based on birthdays determines the order
First to be called will be men whose 20th birthday falls during that year followed by those aged 21, 22, 23, 24, and 25
18 & 19 year olds would be LAST!
All males: write out your full birthday
We will collect birthdates and place them into a box
Next we will draw numbers 1-20
Compile a chart of dates and numbers to see who would be selected first
Birthday method – each day of the year selected and placed in a large drum at random
Numbers 1-365 (366 for leap years) placed in second large drum
If “Aug 4” is drawn from “date” drum and the sequence number “32” is drawn from second drum then those individuals born on “Aug 4” would be ordered for induction after sequences 1-31 complete.
Process completed until all 365 (or 366) birthdays are finished with a sequence.
Immediately the first induction notices are prepared and sent via mailgram to those with low numbers.

Are the penalties for not registering for selective service too steep or not severe enough?
